Why Do I Have No Fruit or Flowers on Gooseberry Bush?

Anonymous added on May 10, 2011 | Answered

Please can you tell me why I get no fruit or flowers on my gooseberry bush, which looks healthy, grows well and the leaves are green? The plant is 10 years old, well fed and pruned at the centre. It has produced no fruit for 6 years. It is in a south facing position in well aerated soil. The garden is in S. W. Cornwall.

It is probably too much nitrogen and too little phosphorus. Add some bone meal to increase phosphorus. This article will help:
